Sole E95 Elliptical Review
Sole E95 Elliptical Detailed Overview
Sole ellipticals are known for supporting fluid, natural motion. Since the E95 has one of the heaviest elliptical flywheels available — 27 pounds — the ride is “smoother than smooth.” This machine operates almost silently too thanks to magnetic resistance and top-notch construction. The automated incline offers additional resistance, plus it can diversity workouts with 20 elliptical paths. Using the incline is an excellent way to target muscles in the legs and glutes. For upper body training the Sole E95 Elliptical has movable arm bars with molded hand grips. Controls for the machine’s resistance and incline are conveniently built into the handles. Stationary handlebars with pulse sensors are provided too, and for wireless heart monitoring the E95 is shipped with a chest strap.
Foot pedals on this trainer are oversized (15”) to let trainees reposition for comfort during workouts. Unlike the pedals on some elliptical trainers, they are cushioned. They have a slight inward slope to reduce the likelihood of ankle and knee stress that’s common with some other front drive elliptical machines. Additionally the user can adjust the pedal angle with a dial.
This model’s warranty package provides lifetime coverage for the frame, five years for parts and electronics, and two years of in-home labor. Considering all of the above it’s easy to see why the Sole E95 is one of our top recommendations for at-home elliptical training.
